A Picture












when did she get this big? Le Sigh...











{OOTN to pick up Billy from the airport! Better outfit pics to come soon}


...can capture everything oh so perfectly!

Our little reunion weekend was wonderful. It's also kind of ironic that the same weekend Billy gets home, I also took a break from internet-iPhone land and have been completely disconnected. Even though it was unplanned, it worked out. On Saturday we went to the pool and as we were leaving Billy went to pick up my towel from my chair and off flying went my precious iPhone into the pool, like a true scene from a movie. Billy jumped in with his clothes on to save it but it's been resting in rice for almost 48 hours and hasn't come back to life. Luckily, Verizon gave me an early upgrade so I will be back up and running in a day or so.

I have to admit, it's been kind of nice to not have a phone attached to my hand/hip for the past couple days. I will say the only thing I've missed is instagram and I feel somewhat lost without that lovely little app.

Anyway-our weekend was spent just hanging out with each other + Rocky, ordering late night food, some shopping, and taking my 2 nieces and nephew out for ice cream and to the dog park. Much like I missed Billy this past week, I have missed seeing their cute faces! They start school this week and it really hit me how big they are getting. The highlights with them, for me, was singing J. Biebs in the car and seeing Billy hang up side down on the monkey bars and seeing my little nieces face light up and look at me and say, "Billy is SO silly!". I love them.

Other things I'm looking forward to this week:

+California and our 2nd anniversary is just 8 days away. This is our last full week at work before our trip. I booked our Alcatraz tickets late last week and also the cute B&B where we are staying in Carmel for 2 nights so now everything is done and we just need next week to come quickly!



+Ohio State football. It was 61 degrees this morning and this weather has me in the mood for football Saturday's. So soon!



+I got my haircut and the 3 inches gone feels like a big fat 10. You know how that goes! I've also gotten rid of my highlights so I'm back to my natural (close) brunette roots! It just goes with fall and is a lot less work. :)

How was your weekend? Have you ever disconnected from your phone for a couple days (planned, or unplanned)?

  1. Technology breaks are definitely nice, but like you said, the second you hop back on, you feel "lost" from everyone else and all that was going "On" so to speak! :)

    I've always wanted to do the Alcatraz tour! We haven't been to Cali in over a year now!

  8. Such adorable pictures of your 2 men!! You need to frame those and put them on your desk!

    Being disconnected can be so nice sometimes! You can still catch up on Instagram online though too :) I use gramofeed when I don't feel like looking on my phone.

  14. Phone? No. But, my insulin pump died suddenly from sweat. Yep! Turns out I should not have been working out with it against my skin. So ... I had to be without that sucker for several days and go back to taking shots old school with a syringe and I was a hot mess. {The pump fine tunes rates and dosages with food and the syringe? Not so much.} So happy and blessed to get another one!

  15. I know how it feels to be disconnected. When we traveled to the islands we didn't have our phone or internet for 10 days. After the third day we got over the shock and it was kind of nice :). Love OSU also, close to Cincinnati OH so some Ohio teams have our heart in this family.

    New follower love your blog by the way. Just started my own over the weekend. I love your style and your cute dog! I have a fur baby Lilly myself :) Glad you got your man back and the trip sounds fab. I love California!!

  17. I love how, as much as ruining a phone sucks, it's super nice to be away from one for a while. I know the feeling well. I ruin stuff. :)

  18. I think I would have a heart attack watching my iPhone fly into the pool!!! But hey, I bet that break was nice!

    I'm SO IN LOVE with that bow shirt you wore to pick Billy up. Tell me it's from a chain that is also here in good 'ol Kansas!!??
